autism spectrum disorder, neurodevelopment, EEG, genetic syndromes, reward processing, community-partnered research
Dr. Clements' research focuses on neurodevelopment, and she is particularly interested in research that supports autistic individuals and individuals with rare genetic syndromes and their families. Dr. Clements is currently working in three main areas: 1) studying how the neural mechanisms of reward processing develop in neurotypical and neurodivergent infants and children using EEG and eye-tracking; 2) partnering with the local autism community to pursue a joint research project; and 3) understanding possible genetic mechanisms underlying autism through rare genetic syndromes associated with autism (e.g., Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, 22q11.2DS/DupS).
